Build a ramp for a shed.
How to build a wooden ramp for a shed. Measure the distance from the face of the shed and dig holes for the supporting concrete blocks underneath the ramp. This guide will explain how to make a quality wooden shed ramp quickly and affordably. The first step is to attach the ledger board to the front of the shed.
After fixing the concrete blocks you now have to measure and cut stringers. Make sure the support is horizontal before securing it with screws. The first step of the woodworking project is to attach the support to the exterior of the frame as shown in the plans.
The recommended distance is between 3 8 and 1 2. The larger you make the gap the larger the bump at the end of the ramp. The next step is to mark the area of the shed ramp on the ground keeping in view the length you selected in the previous step.
